24 Days of Crochetmas: Day 2 – Mystery Christmas Blanket Square 1

For this project there will be 12 different types square. 6 will be different stitch swatches, that aren’t your normal Double or Treble crochet, and 6 will be Christmas-themed motifs. You’ll just have to wait and see what they are!

If you don’t want to make it Christmas-themed, then you can simply do the plain squares in lots of different colours, or keep it in one colour and bring the fun with the different types of stitch. You will end up with 12 squares, 6 plain squares, and 6 patterned squares. You can do this in any combination that you like, so make sure you pay attention to the yarn amounts of each square.

Square 1: Moss Stitch

You will need

1 x Chunky yarn (I have used Women’s Institute Soft & Chunky, 70% acrylic, 30% merino)
10mm hook (this gives a slightly looser tension, I also hold my yarn quite tightly)
